MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at the Southampton.
Mid brown with a very thin off white head. Really good bright fruity nose with just a hint of caramel. Superb earthy malt and dry grassy hops in the flavour. Brilliant balance. Straight forward but absolutely nothing wrong with it at all. Excellent dry dusty malt finish with a building bitterness. Theres no two ways about it, Brodies are dead good.

Cask at the Crosse Keys, Covent Garden. Reddish-brown pour with a beige head. Berries, raisins and light malt aromas. Blackberry, cloves, raspberry flavours. Nice hoppy, fruity finish. Very pleasant.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 13, 2010
500ml bottle from Drink of Fulham, 3rd Sept 2010. Russet with a small white head. Bready, filling beer. Good caramel note on the nose. Hint of smokiness to the flavour. Full palate that suits it. Nothing too exciting but decent beer, possibly a bit heavy going if you were to have a few. Malty without being overly sweet. Nice stuff.

Leighton (19552) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2011
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Pours a rich, amber-brown with no head. Aroma holds toasty malts, light citrus hops and some dark fruit. Flavor is nice, malty with some earthy bitterness and mild nuts. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Finishes with an easy hop character, lightly toasted malts, faint caramel and fruits. A nice beer.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2009
Cask (handpump) at the Cross Keys, Covent Garden. Attractive clear coppery red colour with a thin and loose, but lasting, beige head. Sweetish malt with a good hoppy back note. Lots of fruit on the palate with a modest, but solid, bitterness in the aftertaste. Little bit of chocolate malt in the background. Well-balanced and very drinkable.

From cask at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a small tan head. Aroma is fruity, light hoppy. Fruity, peachy and citrusy to berry flavoured. Solid bitterness coming through the berry/hoppy flavours. Roasted malt and bitter hoppy to fruity finish.

Rune (11649) - Troms, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2009
This was my fourth Brodies beer at the splendid, little pub in Soho called The Old Coffee House. A half pint was served at the right drinking temperature from well kept cask. Deep reddish, or perhaps, mahogany in body colour. Glittering, naked on the surface. Malt-fruity aroma. Well balanced flavour of citrus fruits and caramel malts. Rounded aftertaste. A bit thin on the swallow, otherwise a delicious brew. Enjoyed in an almost perfect pub atmosphere on a sunny Sunday afternoon in London (02.08.2009).

Cask (William IV, Leyton, Brodies Christmas Cracker 2009)
Sweet honey aroma. Palate slightly caramelly. Packed with sticky hops, slightly pungent, pretty big. Finish pleasantly sweet. Decent light malts despite the occasional feeling its too sweet.

harrisoni (17589) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2010
500ml bottle from William IV pub, Leyton, drunk at home. Its a very good malty fruity bitter with some milk choc flavours and some bitterness on the finish. The fruity malt reminds me of some Danish beers Ive had funnily enough. Having had 17 of the beers on cask yesterday, I would say the bottles dont stand up so well. Above average fruity best bitter.
